Quick Questions With Blackjack Love

1. Who inspired you to start playing?

Azza : I’d say Noel Gallagher or Noodles from The Offspring

Sam : Duff Mckagan

Nick : John Lee Hooker

2. Which piece of equipment couldn’t you live without?

Azza : My ES-137, such a beautiful guitar man

Sam : Fast fret

Nick : My old Fender acoustic

3. What’s your favourite album of the year so far?

Azza : Royce Da 5’9” – The Allegory

Sam : Bouncing Souls – Volume 2….looking forward to the new Miley Cyrus one however

Nick : I’m not up to date with new stuff. New Foo Fighters single has really grown on me, hated it at first but now I’m addicted

4. If you could have a lesson from anyone, alive or dead, who would it be?

Azza : Hendrix or Slash, or maybe Curtis Mayfield. He could teach you some cool stuff with that piano key tuning he used.

Sam : Hendrix baby

Nick : Gotta be Keith Richards for me

5. What is your number one tip for any new player?

Azza : Don’t practice til you get it right, practice til you can’t get it wrong

Sam : Practise songs you like rather than scales and theory

Nick : Learn on an old classical Spanish guitar with really thick strings – it will make you a better person. And say no to funk

Azza : Funk is cool, don’t listen to him!
